Anthony Spencer won't be ready Week 1


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

"He's progressed at a surprisingly fast pace," Jones said. "I would say not Week 1 but there's a possibility that any time after that he could feel good enough about his repairs.

We certainly know that he could give us a lift earlier than we had planned."
